LAYTON, Utah — A 25-year-old Layton man is in custody after police say he allegedly placed a recording device in the women’s bathroom at a Taco Bell restaurant in Layton.

Police searched the device, and it showed an adult male placing the device in the bathroom. Police say that the suspect’s face was shown on the device.

Later, police discovered the individual who placed the device in the restroom was an employee of the restaurant. The suspect has been identified as Eulogio Cervantes. 

According to the probable cause statement, Cervantes was arrested as he showed up for work on Wednesday. 

The probable cause statement further states that Cervantes, in a post-Miranda interview with police “fully admitted to placing the camera in the women’s room to record women in a vulnerable state of undress.”

Police also searched the suspect’s phone, according to the probable cause statement, and allegedly found videos and pictures of women in the bathroom. These were of women he did not know and also co-workers. 

The Layton man has been booked in the Davis County Jail. He has been booked for investigation of five counts of voyeurism. He has also been booked for investigation of voyeurism of a child under 14 years of age and sexual exploitation of a minor. Both are third-degree felonies.
